(p.220) Conclusion
Thinking Barcelona
Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents concluding remarks on postmodern Barcelona. The ideologies of postmodern Barcelona have offered a singular occasion to show a critical encounter between Marxism and deconstruction. The combination of master planning and public space has also led to the articulation of Marxism and deconstruction. This chapter specifically describes the historical openings within the spectral nature of the postmodern simulacrum, an urban cosmopolitanism that points to the implosion of the state and the market, and control of capitalist expansion through master planning as well as the permanent enactment of the essence of public space. These heterogeneous points are critical possibilities that can be devised from the ideological analysis of postmodern Barcelona.

Keywords:   postmodern Barcelona, Marxism, deconstruction, urban cosmopolitanism, capitalist expansion, master planning, public space
